Who we are

Dirty Martini is an award-winning creative agency working with an array of awesome organisations across the UK, Europe and USA. These ambitious brands trust us to elevate their businesses above the competition. And we deliver. We craft beautiful digital experiences that bring brands to life.

Dirty Martini was founded in 2018 by Cameron Hodder. He’s on a mission to build a forward-thinking, creative agency that puts people at the heart of everything it does – the kind of company he always wanted to work for, but could not find. A place where people come and create the best work of their lives. And where they have incredible fun doing so.

In this fast-moving world, many businesses focus solely on return on investment and profit at the expense of their people, their customers, and even themselves. We don’t. Our team are family and our clients are friends, and we want them all to benefit from interacting with us.

We nurture, develop, recognise and reward our team. Happy experts deliver extraordinary results. We’re lucky enough to work with some amazing clients including Deliveroo, Michael Caines, Naturalmat, Hutch Houseplants, New Space Architecture, Cake or Death, Hornit, Exeter Food & Drink Festival, Beyond Legal, Harry’s RestaurantHornit and InExeter to name a few!



What you’ll be doing

You’ll report directly to the MD and will oversee the content production, digital marketing, design and photography team. Our Social Media Executives, Content Specialist, Graphic Designer and Office Administrator will report to you. As well as retained clients, we also work on individual projects such as website development and branding, of which you’ll be involved in the project management.

Our clients are diverse, ranging from architects to accountants, with hospitality, food & drink being our specialisms. We believe in every single one of our clients’ businesses. We don’t just manage their accounts, we understand their business, so we can truly act in their best interests and get the best results.

As well as looking after our clients and their marketing, you’ll also be crucial in defining our own marketing success. You’ll develop our in-house strategies which will strengthen our position as industry experts and leaders. Regular content contributions, campaign planning and project management will be essential.

  • Act as an extension of our client’s team – you’ll be expected to know and understand their business in detail.

What they say

I worked at Dirty Martini previously and could not speak more positively of my experience. From the day I started, the team were friendly, helpful and incredibly welcoming. They’re a fantastic bunch with so much individual talent in each department. Cameron’s done a fantastic job of growing the company and building the team. I really enjoyed my time there & particularly the fact that Cameron really seems to care about his employees. I learnt a lot, worked hard & had a great time along the way, I’d recommend Dirty Martini to anyone.

Victoria Walmesley – Executive Assistant


I was fortunate to work with the team at Dirty Martini when I ran Coastal Recycling’s sales and marketing, they were great then! Now I’ve left Coastal and joined them to help them to develop and grow. The team here is good, no, really really good. I love the way they think, the way they act, their honesty, creativity and drive to do the very best for their clients.
